          unPHILtered: Why Dr. Phil Doesn’t Believe In Giving People Benefit Of The Doubt


          January 10, 2019

          Debra Newell was a single, successful business owner who had raised her four children when she decided she was ready to go online to try to find love. That’s where she met John Meehan, a man who first seemed like a charming, intelligent doctor but later revealed he was emotionally abusive with a dangerous and criminal past.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Are you involved in a story that has made the headlines?

          Newell tells Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode that as she was trying to end their marriage, Meehan became “psychotic,” set her car on fire, stalked her and eventually showed up to her daughter’s apartment armed with knives.

          Newell and Meehan’s story inspired the popular podcast Dear John.
